Next week will be the 40th anniversary of the first ordination of women to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church, which took place in Philadelphia in 1974.

Also, the Church of England has finally approved the ordination of women as bishops.

I was at a luncheon today, and discussion turned to the new pope.

These people are not conspiracy theorists, I've known them for years, however, more than a few thought that the new pope was getting sick a lot, and that he's being poisoned by people at the Vatican, because he's too progressive.

Speaking of popes, a vial of the blood of Saint John Paul II has been exposed to view after Mass at the cathedral in Philadelphia this weekend.

I mean no offense to Roman Catholics, but ... eeeew.

This isn't the Middle Ages. I can understand people perhaps wanting to make a pilgrimage to his tomb and pray there, for example, but ... sending a vial of his blood on a road trip?

Who saved a sample of his blood, and when, and why?  ???

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
